Issue Cover

MusicTech  |  May 2019  


Many, many years ago, when pop music was in its infancy, artists would record at multi-purpose recording facilities that were typically designed simply to capture the live performances of the bands and artists. During the 1960s, when pop music had seized the mantle as the dominant entertainment medium in popular culture, bands such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys grew frustrated by the limitations imposed on them by the technology of the time.

Their desire to sonically innovate (not to mention the genius-level work of the producers and engineers they worked with) spearheaded the advancement of multi-track recording technology, as well as several techniques and recording approaches that are still widely used today. In our cover feature, John Pickford examines how much of this classic technology was used – and how we can replicate those approaches today in our own home studios, using very faithful recreations of key kit from decades gone by.

Elsewhere this issue, we learn more about the art of stem mastering from London’s Wired Masters; discover how an effective understanding of social media can hep you grow your audience; talk to a range of producers and engineers (including the Grammy-winning Darrell Thorp) and review all the latest hardware and software.

I hope you enjoy the issue.

   MusicTech Reviewed February 27, 2020 SUBSCRIBER
As someone fairly new to "Electronic Music", DAW's, etc., I appreciate the articles, the reviews and the downloads.
   Great mag and easy to read mobile version Reviewed August 15, 2016
This is a great way to read the mag and the new easy-to-read mobile version makes it even easier to read the content on your phone when out and about.
   Xperia play Reviewed November 23, 2012
Very good, but needs to be a mobile edition, bigger text and what not. Also it would benefit from hardware controlls. But all in all very good and affordable.
   awesome Reviewed November 23, 2012
